About Grace #11-20

#11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. Psalms 84:11

#12 Wisdom and Grace are connected. Wisdom will place on your head an ornament of grace; a crown of glory she will deliver to you (Proverbs 4:9).

#13 Whatever task God has called you to do, He will give you the grace to accomplish it. Therefore no mountain, however high, can stand before Zerubbabel! For it will flatten out before him! And Zerubbabel will finish building this Temple with mighty shouts of thanksgiving for God’s mercy, declaring that all was done by grace alone. Zechariah 4:7

#14 And the child Jesus grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon Him. Notice that grace and wisdom is interconnected. Luke 2:40

#15 Jesus is the God of grace and truth (John 1:14,16). While He is gracious and merciful, He also shows us the truth about ourselves.

#16 Grace is not a license to sin (Jude 4), but rather grace is the empowerment to not sin.

#17 Grace (favor) and peace (shalom) be multiplied to you…He has given us all things pertaining to life and godliness (2 Peter 1:2-3). Notice that grace and peace go together.

#18 Out of His (God’s) fullness, we have received abundance of grace…one grace after another, spiritual blessing upon spiritual blessing, favor upon favor, and gift heaped upon gift. John 1:16, Amplified

#19 Grace gives you the inner strength to go through any situation, or season in your life, with composure and confidence.

#20 We have to enter into that grace by faith. Entering into grace is entering into God’s Sabbath rest.

#286 Jesus said in John 15:7, “If you remain (abide) in Me and My words remain in you, ask whatever you wish and it will be done for you.”

#287 Faith = Forwarding All Issues To Heaven

#288 You have to trust God and keep your hope, because your hope is what produces your faith. And your faith is what activates the power of God.

#289 God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we can ask, think or imagine. Ephesians 3:20

#290 God gives miracles to those who believe.

#291 If God said it, He will do it. He is not a human who lies or a mortal who changes his mind. When He says something, He will do it. When He makes a promise, He will fulfill it.

#292 Study God’s Word to find out what belongs to you through Christ. Use your faith to withdraw from Heaven what belongs to you in the earth.

#293 Everything we receive from God, we receive by faith. Nothing is more faith building than discovering that our Heavenly Father is good!

#294 Have a dream that takes you beyond where you are now. Dream so big that it is beyond you and God has to show up.

#295 Getting into serious financial debt or losing your home over a dream God gives you is not faith; it’s presumption or stepping out prematurely.

#296 You can use your faith to call in finances for a dream God gives you. When it’s the right timing, everything will fall into place. The finances will come in and the payments will be manageable. You will feel an ease and peace about things, rather than pressure.

#297 Living debt free in your personal life and ministry is God’s very best. Jesus said to owe no man anything, except to love one another. Use your faith to believe that every bill is paid on time and in full, and that there is money left over in the bank.

 

About Faith 275-285

About Faith 275-285

#275 Where there is faith, miracles happen.

#276 Your faith increases as you receive more revelation of God’s Word. Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.

#277 Faith comes from past victories that God has done for you, and answered prayers.

#278 Abraham did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God; but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God. Being fully persuaded that God had power to do what He had promised.

#279 God never gives you a dream that matches your budget. He’s not checking your bank account, He’s checking your faith. He is your Supplier.

#280 Make room. God is enlarging your territory. 1 Chronicles 4:10

#281 Prayer is the key turned by the handle of faith that unlocks the treasures of God. Author Unknown

#282 Having faith isn’t just positive thinking (although that helps). Faith comes from the heart, not the mind. Faith is not mental assent.

#283 Faith is being fully persuaded of the thing you cannot see, and knowing it is going to happen.

#284 True faith manifests itself through our actions. Faith without works is dead.

#285 Hope is putting faith to work when doubting would be easier.

 

Faith Is … #264-274

Faith Is … #264-274

#264 God will open the door, but you still have to walk through it. Never let fear keep you from going where your faith is trying to take you.

#265 There is no limit to what God can do! Just believe and have faith.

#266 It is your responsibility to speak to the mountain (problem, obstacle) in your life (not the responsibility of a prophet, pastor or spiritual leaders).

#267 If you don’t speak to your mountain, and tell it to get out of your way, it will speak to you.

#268 Put fear and doubt behind you. God can do the impossible if you just believe.

#269 You have to learn to be the prophet over your own life. Speak and decree what you would like to see happen. Call it into existence.

#270 Jesus said in John 14:14, “If you ask anything in My Name, I will do it.”

#271 Whose report will you believe? The medical report may be true, but it is subject to change with faith, and believing that God’s Word is true. He heals today.

#272 Jesus said in Mark 11:24, “What things so ever you desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them.”

#273 Speak things into existence, calling those things which are not as though they already were. God has created us to be speaking spirits like He is.

#274 Choose faith over worry.

Faith Is … #242-252

Faith Is … #242-252

#242 Faith places a demand on your Covenant rights and the promises in God’s Word.

#243 Faith finds Scriptures to back up your petitions, because you first have to know what the Bible says about a certain thing before you can have faith for it.

#244 Connect your faith to someone who is likeminded. If just two of you agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of My Father in Heaven.

#245 Faith expects it to happen (whatever it is you are believing for).

#246 Abraham represents faith, and Sarah represents grace. Faith and Grace always go together. We are saved by faith and grace. Faith believes it has received the answer before it’s happened. Grace gives you the strength and composure to be patient and wait for the manifestation of the answer. Grace empowers you. Grace gives you rest and an ease about things, and as you enter into God’s Sabbath rest you are refreshed and find your strength to hold on until the answer comes.

#247 Abraham was both a prophet and an intercessor. He experienced a contradiction in his life when it came to his faith. He prayed for the house of Abimelech that barrenness would be removed, and God answered his prayer. Yet his own wife remained barren for years and years. However, Abraham never lost faith. He kept on believing despite the odds. In God’s timing, Abraham and Sarah’s prayers were answered when God brought resurrection life back into Abraham’s body (because by this time he was too old to father children) and God quickened Sarah’s dead womb and she conceived Isaac, the son of promise.

#248 Abraham’s faith was tested again when Isaac was a youth or young adult. God told Abraham to offer Isaac on the altar. Abraham obeyed God. Abraham believed that God would raise Isaac from the dead because God promised that through Isaac his offspring would be as the sand on the seashore and as the stars in the heavens. At the last moment, an angel of the Lord stopped the sacrifice. A ram was provided and offered instead.

#249 Faith sees vision first before it speaks. You have to daydream and have an image on the inside, then begin to call what you see into existence.

#250 God wired us for faith and not fear. Faith propels us forward, but fear paralyzes.

#251 Faith is not a struggle. It is a rest.

#252 When you are truly in faith, you are at rest. You trust God.

#219 Claim God’s protection and safety by faith (Psalms 91). Accept Him as your protector, as well as Savior.

#220 The fig tree dried up from the roots when Jesus cursed it (Mark 11:13-14,20-26). We can command sickness to be dried up from the roots.

#221 When you spend time in the Word, it gives you faith.

#222 Faith is what sustains you through a test or trial. You will come out of the fire without even the smell of smoke.

#223 You must first have hope before you have faith. The one with the most hope has the most influence.

#224 Faith pleases God and opens doors.

#225 Faith is the radar that sees through the fog. Corrie ten Boom

#226 Faith sees God involved in your circumstances.

#227 Faith doesn’t look at the symptoms or pain, but faith focuses on the promises in the Word. (Faith does not deny facts, but changes facts.)

#228 Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes” (Mark 9:23).

#229 “Believe you receive in the faith realm, and you shall have it in the natural realm.” John Osteen

#230 Faith has eyes. It sees the end result before it happens. You have to get an image on the inside. You have to picture yourself receiving whatever it is you’re believing for, then begin to thank God and call it into existence.

About Faith #205-218

#205 The good news of the Gospel manifests the power of God when it is believed and acted on.

#206 When we find out from the Word what God says about a matter, then we can decree with authority whatever we are believing for.

#207 “Command ye Me” (Isaiah 45:11). You shall decree a thing and it shall be established (Job 22:28).

#208 Faith is trusting God as you take your next step.

#209 Through faith, the elders obtained a good report (Hebrews 11:2).

#210 Faith begins to make preparations (as if the answer were already in manifestation). For example, if you’re believing for a better job, then begin to prepare by taking classes to receive advanced training. If you’re believing for a baby, then begin to prepare the nursery.

#211 Personal vision is fulfilled by corporate vision commitment. What God called me to do in my personal life is fulfilled when I connect myself to something corporately that God called us to do collectively. Bishop Christopher C. Smith

#212 When God speaks a thing, He always speaks a proceeding word, a word for advancement with some good. Therefore, it is no longer if it comes, but when it comes. For the promise shall surely come. Bishop Christopher C. Smith

#213 Having faith does not mean you won’t have trouble. Faith will bring you out of trouble. “Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivers him out of them all” (Psalms 34:19).

#214 Faith is the beginning or starting point of your turnaround (Mark 11:22-24).

#215 Don’t let the traditions of man neutralize your faith, such as the tradition that says that healing is not for today. The Word says we are healed by Jesus’ stripes.

#216 God works miracles not by the works of the law, but by the hearing of faith (Galations 3:5).

#217 Only those who are of faith are sons of Abraham (Galatians 3:7).

#218 Faith and diligence brings promotion and increase in your life.
